All these compression schemes will be obsolete soon, stick with WAV or AIFF for the mac folks. Redbook standard CD. If you run out of drive space open a gmail account and email yourself one song at a time and you'll never run out of space!

We're not anywhere near close to living without compression, and lossless is great. I think FLAC is stronger at this point, and is being supported in entertainment center software and in audio applications mostly via plug-ins (Adobe Audition for example).

Thanks All

I'm pretty happy as long as Trader's Little Helper can decode to WAV which it does for FLAC and SHN. Not sure about that Ogg Vorbis - that just sounds weird.

Ogg vorbis is alright, flac is not that user friendly... the vorbis sounds great and you don't need no converter.

If Native Ogg Vorbis and Theora support is added in Firefox as planned...

All I know is wavosaur and reaper can convert to/from it and it sounds better than mp3.
